had a donja from mid-1800s myself that I deeply regret selling. if i understand correctly, the type of garment was worn indoors and sometimes used as a blanket to conserve heat? mine was incredibly heavy quilted hemp cloth with filling that had oxidised so much over the years that it had taken on a deep black colour.

i remember that outfit! has that rare fantastic quality of being otherworldy but not outlandish that i love so

was thinking of this recently, if a lot of classic menswear aspires to a "timeless" quality, like it wouldn't be much out of place whether in the 40s, 70s, or now, one way we could describe a certain aesthetic slant round here, is that it would appear just slightly unhinged whether in the 40s, 70s, etc, but only just...

off topic, would everybody please stop posting pictures of those gorgeous tabi gloves, i don't need another thingy to spend money on

donja was sort of hemp nightwear worn in the northern area where cotton was not available. stuffed with hemp lint and yes used also like heavy duty comforter/duvet. if it has cotton cloth (called sakiori) exterior, it can be relatively less old one.
there is a similar item dotera, sometimes known as tanzen, which is basically all cotton, much lighter than donja. dotera hardly stands while donja does.

dotera yohji made for kitano

I'll take more pics of this one once it's not so windy out. 1950s French shop coat in cotton chambray. I've never seen a fabric this light on a piece this old––it's already shredded, but I'd imagine that even when in good condition it would fall apart quick in any real work environment. But what do I know?

Mr. F, if you're still out there, I have your coat.

I have yet to come across other groups/cultures that have produced seriously incredible fabrics with as much borderline-insane attention to detail as the Japanese. Love it.

A wide variety of amazing pieces here: http://emuseumplus.lsh.se/eMuseumPlus

I found myself spending an evening solely concerned with antique boots, for some reason:

Quote:
The Beatles' image that was to become indelibly etched on the world in 1963/64 married collarless jackets and Chelsea boots. The footwear became so synonymous with the group that they were popularly re-named the 'Beatle' boot. According to Bill Harry in 'The Beatles Encyclopedia' (Virgin Publishing Ltd., 2000) John and Paul were in London on their way back to Liverpool after a holiday in Paris in October 1961 when they saw some Chelsea boots in the window of shoemakers Anello & Davide, Charing Cross Road. Much taken with the elastic-sided, pointed toe and Cuban-heeled boots, they each bought a pair, followed soon after by George and Pete. The photograph as illustrated in the catalogue shows George wearing similar pairs of Beatles boots.

The influence of the Beatles 'look' that was to emerge a few years later was recorded in photographer Terence Spencer's images of queues of teenaged boys outside Anello & Davide and a row of them inside trying on the 'Beatle' boots. ('It Was Thirty Years Go Today', Bloomsbury Publishing Ltd., 1994).


The photo in question:
